Watch our Spotlight 100 Mile Club
created by Coach Heather Jergenson:
We are also featured on the 100 Mile website in June!
After registration, you will be invited to the private Bill Roberts 100 Mile Club Facebook page.
Would you like to have your student learn how to exercise safely and instill healthy habits that will last a lifetime? How about challenging them to set a goal, earning a great sense of accomplishment when they do, as well as being motivated with prizes along the way?
If so, we would love to have you join us for another great year of 100 mile club! The 100 Mile Club provides the opportunity to run or walk 100 miles during a single school year which improves school readiness to learn, creates better educational outcomes, builds self-esteem and improves overall health in the lives of children and others.
How do I sign up? Fill out the registration form and return it to the front office with your $12 registration fee, which will include prizes along the way such as a t-shirt once the participant reaches 25 miles. (Students can wear their t-shirt to school on Fridays!) Parents can sign up too, in fact we encourage families to commit to a healthier lifestyle together! DPS Wellness Program has financial assistance available if needed. Please indicate on your enrollment form if assistance is needed.
When do I run? You can run anytime starting the first day of school! Before school runs start on September 12 and are Monday through Friday from 7:30-8:00 am on the field behind school if the weather is nice or in the gym if it’s cold. Run or walk to and from school and get additional prizes by signing up for the school’s Boltage program . Get your family to walk or run together after dinner. There are so many ways to earn miles! If you have an ECE or Kindergarten student that need to be walked to class, please let the coach know when you drop your runner off.
Can I count miles accumulated during other sports like running while playing soccer or wandering around a museum/zoo? No, it should be a purposeful walk or run for this program.
How do I log my miles? Once you sign up, complete the registration form and turn it in along with your registration fee, you will receive a confirmation email. We will attach a tracker that you may use or you may use any method you choose to track miles. We will send out a reminder every week to total your miles and if your child/children are approaching a milestone (25, 50, 75, 100, etc.) we will ready the prize that corresponds to that milestone and deliver that prize to their teacher’s box when it is achieved.
Twenty eight kids received gold medals last school year with a total of 93 runners. We are hoping to continue to expand our club in its fourth year. Will you or your student earn gold this year?
